Today is the first day of Mental Health Awareness Week which runs from until 20th May, 2018.
The theme this year is Stress which is unfortunately as common as a cold in this day and age. Whilst short term stress can be useful as it helps us to get motivated to action, chronic long term stress can be detrimental to our mental and physical health in so many ways.
You could also visit this useful NHS page for more tips and information on how to manage stress.
Further information about this year's theme can also be found on the Mental Health Foundation's website.
Until next time
